Examining a specific 13th-century sermon (translated here by the author) that may have been delivered in or near the cathedral of Notre Dame of Amiens, this volume explores the relationship between verbal and visual culture, drawing parallels between rhetorical devices used in the sermon and the stylistic and compositional elements that characterize the cathedral's sculptural and architectural programs.
